Power Consumption in OMV

  • Hey guys,


    Could it be that there is something wrong with the Power Management of HDDs in OMV?
    I am measuring the Power Consumption in IDLE with 42W, no matter what I do.


    Here are my system specs.


    1x Pentium G3220 CPU
    8GB Ram
    1x SAMSUNG HD103SJ
    2x 4TB WD RED
    1x Sata Card


    I feel like the HDDs are not spinning down...


    APM - 127
    Minimum Performace, Minimum Acoustic
    Spindown 30
    Write cache enabled

  • Try a lower value than 30 minutes.

  • They should, but users had problems with values as high as 30mins and longer.

  • I set APM to 1 (Minimum power usage with standby (Spindown)), and timer set to 60min, works well, HDDs do spin down. So the statement "30 min seems to be bugged" only when APM set to 127?

    OMV 1.0.x built in ESXi 5.0 U3

  • Hi Bavilo


    If you're still around this forum, mind telling me how you were checking the power consumption? Via a software or an external hardware?


    Cheer.

  • I have set my HDD to APM-1 - Minimum power usage with standby (spindown), with 5 minutes spindown time (as i am still in testing phase) and can hear the HDD spin down after 5 minutes.

    Also, power consumption is reduced.
